Dear God, help me out with the basics, would you?

Dear God, help me out with the basics, would you

Dear God,

Show me how to love the ones that are like, really hard to love. The misogynists and boundary bullies, the fake leaders and land-rapers. Actually, for the sake of efficiency, just show me how to love the most greedy. That should cover it. (But while we’re at it, help me out with the Mean Girls, ‘cause like, whoa.)

Show me how to move my body through a time and space that is full of photoshopped illusions, exorbitant goals, and endocrine disruptors. Instead of wanting her to be any different or stronger, I suspect that you’ll tell me to shower my bodacious bod’ — every cell, and bronchial, and pore, and limb — with infinite gratitude for carrying me through gravity, sunrise after sunrise; for the ecstasy; for the endurance. On second thought, I can rescind this request for help. I think I’ve got it.

Show me how to surf my creativity like the most benevolent tsunami.

Help me do the hard work of tenderness.

This is in the realm of super magical powers, but I’d really love to know how to transmute all of the plastic that coats the Earth and chokes her oceans into some kind of restorative nutrient. Kinda of like how leaves are made into tinctures.

This is the most basic of basics but could you show me how to sleep — sleep like I deserve to rest, with no worries about keeping up.

Sweet Father-Mother, help me get free of the damn cloud. Remind me what life was like before my devices became vices. Or even better, how I can operate from the here and now with the gifts of modernity and the intention of ancient devotion.

There is a vantage point on one of the peaks of my life with a sign that says, “You’ve come so far.” (Thanks for putting it where I can see it.) Can you help me take a break every day to walk there and enjoy the view? I’ll meet you there, with every intention of staying a while.

Thank you for absolutely everything.


 

It’s Pass on a Prayer Day. Everyday. Please and thank you. Press share. xo

Your esteem and your money.

Your esteem and your money-Danielle-LaPorte

We live in a global economy of insecurity. Not because of vacillating markets, but unstable self worth.

Our lack of esteem feeds the globalization machine.
If you/we loved ourselves more deeply, a lot of industries would go bankrupt. But…bankrupting the human spirit turns out to be great for the gross national product.

Here’s a money-saving tip that also happens to be a radical counter-cultural act of defiance:

Before you buy the promising under eye concealer, or the jeans (that are just like three other pairs of jeans you got, because they were going to change your life by attracting the perfect life partner), or before you sign the car lease because you’ve been picturing that moment you drive up to your family reunion, and as the glint of the chrome catches your cousins eye, they’ll finally know that you’ve been way smarter than all of them all along), before you pull out the credit card, take a full breath in and out and say to yourself, to YOU:

I love you.

And then see if you still have to have it.

How to hone your truth detector.

There’s so much faking it to make it and deception happening in every sector of life — from politics to self-improvement. It’s nothing new, spin-doctoring is a historical human habit. It’s just that it’s coming at us from more directions, 24-7 input if we want it.

So how can we hone our truth detectors? We start by acknowledging our craving for it — our hunger for connection, our aching for the intimacy of realness. And that’s an uncomfortable recognition. The longing can make us feel lonely and disempowered. Who’s for real? What’s the answer? Who’s on my side? The frustration can wear us down and then we start to believe the BS being sold to us. We want some relief. We want to connect.

Keep your longing for The Real Thing alive.

Constant craving for truth is demanding, but that hunger keeps you alert.

Idealists are harder to fool.

 


 

Three cheers for idealism! Support your fellow black sheep and truth activists. Press forward. xo
